Director of Students Services, Mr. Edgar Hunter, has urged newcomers at the Dominica State College (DSC), to join the several clubs available on campus this year.

This year, he explained that individuals are allowed to join as many as two clubs, in order to keep themselves occupied while on campus.

He told the participants that if they do not play an active role in their student government, no activity will be available to them.

Mr. Edgar says, the Student Services are involved in orientations and graduations, and advised the students to visit his office at the college, when necessary.

Minister of Education, Honourable Petter St. Jean, gave the students the Government’s firm commitment, of their support of the DSC.

Mr. St. Jean, believes that every young person, despite one’s background or family tag line, must be given an equal educational opportunity.

He said, education is not a privilege but a right to every young Dominican.

He informed us, that Dominica, not just the Ministry of Education, is currently pushing the agenda of Technical and Vocational Education, training and Caribbean Vocational Qualifications (CVQs).

According to the Minister, it is imperative that Dominica be a key player in the move towards technical and vocational education, and training.

“We believe that Dominica State College is that engine, that will transform our local economy, and will place us at a level that is second to no other country in the region,” he stated.

The Minister commended the President of the DSC, Dr. Donald Peters and his staff, for their continuous contributions, towards national development in Dominica and called on the young people, to take their education seriously.

There are many adults he said, who did not have the opportunity that the students currently take for granted.

Mr. St. Jean informed the young men, that education is not only for the young ladies.
